Fernanda Figueiredo (BR)
After completing her bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts in 2005, Fernanda Figueiredo worked actively as an artist in São Paulo. For the past ten years, drawing and painting have been the media that best reflect her artistic production. Even though she has produced intensively using several different supports, she always maintained them in dialog with these two techniques. In the past two years though, her focus has increasingly centered on painting and appropriation. Since 2005, Fernanda Figueiredo took part in several solo and group exhibitions. She also worked for more than 10 years in partnership with the artist Eduardo Mattos, as a collaborative duo. Together they did two international artist residencies including PICTURE BERLIN (2012), have works in the public collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro and won three prestigious mo- ney awards granted by the Brazilian government.
